Gold79 Mines Ltd. (TSXV: AUU) ("Gold79" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a planned drill program at the Greyhound project located in Nunavut, Canada. In May, project operator Agnico Eagle Mines Limited ("Agnico Eagle") will initiate a diamond drilling program focused on three priority target areas with the objective of identifying gold-bearing structures or veins at two targets and VMS-type mineralization at another target area. The planned drilling program will comprise eight holes for approximately 1,100 metres. Figure 1 details the planned program and hole locations along with the location of both rock and soil historical (2008-2019) gold and copper-zinc anomalies.

South-East Aura Lake Gold Target

Three drill holes are planned (390 metres) targeting the strongest induced polarization (IP) anomalies from a 2018 geophysical survey. The anomalies have a NE to ENE orientation and parallel a major regional structure located a few hundred metres to the south. The planned drill holes are up ice of distinct gold-in-till anomalies. These holes will test the source of soil and boulder Au and As anomalies. The South Aura Lake Gold Target is proximal to a number of historical high grade locally transported rock samples containing up to 28 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (see Figure 2).

Dingo Pluton Gold Target

Two drill holes are planned (270 metres). The first hole (21A) targets gold in quartz veining in the margin of the Dingo pluton, focussed on an isolated electromagnetic anomaly, potentially sulfide mineralization. It is also associated with gold-soil anomalies, surface samples with up to 12.5 g/t Au, and a possible ENE structure identified by a high-resolution ground magnetic survey. The second hole (21B) targets a surface gold discovery at the north edge of the pluton. Grab samples contain up to 12.4 g/t gold.

Outstanding Lake VMS Target

Three drill holes are planned for a total of 450 metres, to test EM anomalies at the Outstanding Lake VMS Target area. Results from a 2020 till survey identified numerous base metal anomalies, as well as an isolated gold anomaly, all down ice. A Max-Min EM survey conducted on the ice at Outstanding Lake identified a strong conductor. It occurs within a 2km Airborne VTEM conductive zone coincident with the Outstanding Lake north and south prospective areas. Drill core from hole DDH G11-31 at the SE shore of Outstanding Lake, drilled to the east away from the conductor, contains both base metal contents and alteration characteristics of a VMS footwall, which support the current targeting. Glacially transported boulders containing 9.3% Cu and 18.4% Zn were previously discovered about 1 kilometre to the west of Outstanding Lake. The EM anomalies at Outstanding Lake are a probable source.

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(Frankfurt:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") has confirmed the correlation of a "low-resistivity zone" with known alteration and possible gold mineralization at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA

The Q4-2021 drill program at Slumber has currently completed five RC (reverse circulation) drill holes totaling approximately 900 meters. The goal of this program is the confirmation of a reinterpreted geological model and correlation of alteration and possible gold mineralization with a low resistivity zone identified by last year's CSAMT work (see press release September 7th, 2021). The initial holes appear to confirm this previously untested concept.

Novo Identifies Ni-Cu Targets at Southcourt, Andover Intrusion, Adjacent to Azure's Andover VC-07 Ni-Cu-Co Discovery

Novo Identifies Ni-Cu Targets at Southcourt, Andover Intrusion, Adjacent to Azure's Andover VC-07 Ni-Cu-Co Discovery

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Novo's extensive greenfields exploration program has recently identified and advanced a series Ni-Cu-Co targets adjacent to Azure Minerals Limited's (" Azure ") (ASX: AZS) Andover VC-07 Ni-Cu-Co massive sulphide discovery (" Andover ") and Artemis Resources Limited's (" Artemis ") (ASX: ARV) Carlow Castle Au-Cu-Co discovery (" Carlow Castle ")
  • Novo's 100%-owned exploration licence 47/1745 contains several airborne electromagnetic (" VTEM ") anomalies (previously defined in 2007 by Legend Mining Limited (" Legend ") (ASX: LEG)) which have not been drill tested, along with large high order soil geochemical anomalies (including Cu, Ni and Co) associated with the VTEM conductors, including the Southcourt and Milburn prospects
  • Novo is now progressing ground electromagnetic (" EM ") geophysical surveys in the near-term to advance these discoveries
  • This work is consistent with Novo's accelerated exploration strategy targeted at growing the Company's portfolio of gold and battery metals prospects in the Pilbara region of Western Australia

Novo Resources Corp. ( "Novo" or the "Company" ) (TSX: NVO, NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to advise that it has recently identified and advanced a series of Au-Cu and Ni-Cu-Co targets on EL471745, adjacent to Andover 1 and Carlow Castle 2 in the West Pilbara region of Western Australia, although there is no certainty that EL471745 contains the same levels of mineralization as either of these discoveries.
